Hyaluronic acid fillers act like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple. It is a common ingredient in many dermal fillers on the market today including Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane and many more. It is preferred because it is found naturally in the human body in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding the eyes.
But, what happens when hyaluronic fillers do not create a desired look? Good news! Hyaluronic acid fillers are reversible and can be dissolved with hyaluronidase in the event of lumps or Tyndall effect. Hyaluronidase can be injected into the treated area and will dissolve the hyaluronic acid filler and reverse the original treatment. This is especially beneficial to patients who experience the Tyndall effect. This occurs when the filler is injected superficially and a bluish color appears under the skin.
Before receiving any dermal filler procedure be sure to research the doctor who will be performing the treatment. Is he/she board certified? How many times have the performed the procedure?
